Fashion Forward: In love with Cape Dresses

We are in love with cape dresses this year! Cape dresses made a sweeping comeback on runways and red carpets in 2012, and boy, if they aren't majestic! Effortlessly chic and stylish, it's no surprise our desires have been successfully 'caped'!

How chic are cape dresses though? Long gone and perished are those days when capes were exclusive to villians (think Dracula), superheroes (think Batman) and hobbits(think Frodo)... right?
